Really nice colours, penetrating eyes, very sharpe picture, ...
It's pitty that the shoulder of the first man (with the red turban) is cut.
Nice picture anyway !

Obviously the most striking thing about this portrait is the way you have controlled dof so nicely,everything from one side to another is perfectly in focus. The colours are very soft, you've avoided over-saturating what could be a pretty intense scene, which is a good idea I think. There is an element of awkwardness in their smiles, but there is a shy awkwardness that adds to the mellow aspect of the portrait. Nice work.

Dear Vivek, fantastic portrait. These faces shows a lot and your fine technique helps telling their story. What it exactly is I don't know but it could very well tell the story of a great friendship. Sharness is extremely good and brings foreward all the finest details of skin, beards and clothes. The white hair and beard is a good eyecatcher and in fine contrast to his friend with the black beard. Of course background is all blurred and the composition and crop is tight and very effectful. You have told a fine story, thank's for sharing. Greetings Jens.

Your skills for portrait photography are really becoming quite impressive. To document the faces of life so transient is something to be very proud of...to capture the personality in a single still moment...it is a difficult task. This is why so many shy away and don't appreciate the skill. Some of us would rather sneek up and catch a moment without our presence being acknowledged; this does have its merits, but portraits allow the soul to be bared in a direct manner. Either you get the particular feeling or you don't, but you cannot hide from the direct focus of the eyes.
Best regards friend,

Really impressive portrait. You used very cleverly their expressive faces to make a very punchy image. The dof is perfect and the sharpness and colors are amazing.
Congratulations, it's a master work.
